NORTH10 PHILADELPHIA (NORTH10) is committed to improving the overall quality of life in the Hunting Park – East Tioga communities of North Philadelphia. Since 2007, the Lenfest Center has provided the youth of the Hunting Park-East Tioga sections of North Philadelphia with a welcoming, safe, and enriching refuge from systemic neighborhood violence, poverty, and a myriad of other trauma-inducing challenges. In 2018, North10, Philadelphia was formed as the parent organization, with the Lenfest Center as the cornerstone of innovative and inclusive efforts to revitalize this neighborhood. North10 has also expanded our original focus on youth to include all residents of our neighborhood.

North10, Philadelphia works with our neighbors in Hunting Park-East Tioga and employs a holistic model to address issues of systemic violence, poverty, and disinvestment that have induced trauma, created barriers, and challenged the health and prosperity of this community. In recognition of the research that shows that the neighborhood in which we are born and grow up significantly impacts our life outcomes, including educational path, potential earnings, economic mobility, and long-term health, we invest in infrastructure, people, and programming to address Social Determinants of Health (SDoH). In close collaboration with neighborhood stakeholders North10 has developed an array of programs to meet the evolving needs of all neighborhood residents. North10's goal is for our community to be home to high-quality, cradle-to-career educational options; dignified and affordable housing; a thriving cohort of local businesses and job opportunities; and a safer, cleaner, healthier, and greener environment. Our activities include workforce development; a free-choice, no-cost community market; out-of-school time programs for youth; and affordable housing.


The Director of Development is an essential member of North10’s external affairs team and will work closely with the Chief External Affairs Officer to increase brand awareness and grow our community of donors.
